Abstract

A method is provided for enabling a user of a workstation or display terminal connected to a computer system to generate mass mailing labels in conjunction with mass mailing. The method allows the user to generate the labels from the same queried file used for the mass mailing. The labels are generated from a separate document and have all of the flexibility for text on the label that a document has including items like printing with special typestyles and fonts, including customer numbers on the label, and extracting customer names and addresses from the data base. In this method, the label application is provided out of a"special" document. The user creates a document in which the editor is informed that it is a label document.
